The Used Release New Song Blow Me, Featuring Jason Aalon Butler
“The Used are proud to present our new song Blow Me featuring Jason Aalon Butler from Fever 333,” says vocalist Bert McCracken. “Whether metaphorically signifying the power of words in general or magnifying concern for the situation of societal gun violence, we urge the fans of our music to find individual and personal meaning in all of our songs.”

“If I’m being honest, I’ve been a fan of [The Used] since the first single they put on an Atticus Clothing comp CD back in 2002,” says Jason Aalon Butler. “I heard Box Full Of Sharp Objects and thought, ‘This is it. This is the next step in heavier music with melodic sensibility.’
“I loved it. I studied it. Then I met the man that produced it, John Feldmann. Loved him. Studied him. Then a couple of months ago I was asked by the band and John to sing on a track from the new album. They played me some songs and, no bullshit, I got that feeling I felt when I first heard Box Full on that comp 17 years ago. For any and all The Used fans; they’re back again. In a big fucking way.”
Blow Me is the first new music The Used have released in two years, and they’re currently working on their eighth full-length album – due for release on John Feldmann’s Big Noise record label.
“I couldn’t be more honoured or grateful to have one of my favourite bands of all time at my record label,” says John. “They are one of the most influential bands of the last 20 years and we are making a career-defining album at the minute.
“They are one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen and Bert is quite possibly the best singer I’ve ever worked with. This has been a dream of mine since I met them in 2001.”
